Subject: Comparing HamNoSys, Stokoe & SignWriting
November 17, 1999
Dear SignWriting List Members:
I am writing to announce an important new forum on our SignWriting Web Site.
It is entitled:
The SignWriting Linguistics Forum
...linguistic issues surrounding SignWriting...
The first article posted in the Linguistics Forum is:
"Writing the Same Signs in
Different Transcription Systems
Comparing HamNoSys, Stokoe & SignWriting"
This article is co-authored by three people:
Universitaet Hamburg, Germany
Joe Martin, Western Washington University
Deaf Action Committee For SignWriting
The article also shows the Shorthand system that is a part of SignWriting:
Hope you enjoy the new Linguistics Forum. More articles are planned in the
future, including an in depth comparison between the Stokoe system and
SignWriting, written by linguist Joe Martin.
Have a wonderful day!
